Deus Ex: Mankind Divided has just been recently released on the PC and it already had a rough start.
Just like any other recently released games, Deus Ex: Mankind Divided had a slew of in-game issues that made players irate.
Although the game had a rough start, the game was still received positively by the majority of the community and they have put great faith in the game developers, Eidos Montreal.
Since the game’s release, fans were very vocal about the issues that PC players of the game face. There are a lot of bugs in the game that really toned down the gameplay experience for some people.
Thankfully, Eidos Montreal heard all of their voices and has released a new patch that will hopefully address some, if not all, the major issues that are present in the game.
Apparently, there were unforeseen circumstances before the game was released and the game developers hope that this new patch will alleviate some of the in-game problems present in the PC version of the game.
Some of the major fixes in the recently released patch are the game client crashes due to third-party programs have now been fixed.
According to some people, some other programs might interfere with the game. Programs such as antivirus software or anti-malware programs, for example, might interfere with the game’s engine and thus, results into game crashes.
Another major bug that was fixed with the patch is that the game will no longer crash when you’re viewing the intro video catalog.
Many people want to know more about the game and the intro, albeit amazing, crashes the game client. This patch fixes that.
There are also some performance issues that players face. Even on high-end gaming PCs, a lot of people are still experiencing stuttering, freezing, and ultimately, the game client crashing.
Although the patch didn’t fix this, Eidos Montreal issued a statement regarding a temporary workaround.
According to their statement, they urged people who meet the recommended requirements of the game to tone down their settings for now.
That is because the MSAA settings on some preset parameters (like Very High/Ultra) are set very high and these settings can be so demanding on one’s graphics card.
The best thing you can do for now is to set it to the High Preset and tweaking other graphical options manually until you get your desired result.
The High Preset has the MSAA setting turned off by default so that would be a good place to start.
This is a pretty interesting point. You see, most people have graphics cards that are able to handle even the most demanding games. For Eidos Montreal to suggest players to lower their graphical settings, most especially the MSAA, is something that the developers might have overlooked during the development process.
Still, the game developers assured the public that they are working on patches that will hopefully address all of the major issues, including performance issues, in the near future.
Deus Ex: Mankind Divided is now available on the PC, Xbox One, and Playstation 4 game consoles.
